The unity you have within your church may be the most powerful sermon those outside your church will ever hear.
Take a minute and reflect on the image you portray when they see you. Do people hear you complaining about the issues or praising the opportunities? Think before you speak. Voice your concerns with your church staff in private, and always praise the positives in public.
“I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me. And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one,
John 17: 20-22 (NABRE)
